wounded in the line of duty
"I hope you are note blinded and biased by some personal conflicts inside the project. If there indeed is such an issue, as you are suggesting, I think it's necessary to clarify the problem."
As someone who did some (too few) promotional events for CentOS together with Dag, I can assure you that he is not. Currently the CentOS project is completely intransparent to outsiders.
I bring some examples for intransparency:
* How is the distribution build? If I want to build my own "CentOS" from the Red Hat sources, how to do?
* Development of CentOS Plus is pretty much intransparent (at least to me): How is maintainer of which package? Where is the Version Control for the spec files? Where can I see the build infrastructure?
* Release process of new CentOS versions is intransparent. No-one outside of the very core team knows how many packages are already rebuilt and what the state is.
The most intransparent thing is finances where no-one except Lance knows how much money there is and how it is spent.
